I'm actually trying to be more sensitive to the feelings of the misguided and delusional heads who believe the latter era music is compelling because they attended shows and enjoyed the parking lot scene during this period. ;)

In this case is it really the music, or is it "some very fine looking girls and mostly jerry in Shorts looking ragged, yet oddly happy?"

kinder gentler Cliff huh? Well that's probably a good thing. I'm not as hard core as you. First I LIKE to mix it up otherwise even the 70's stuff will start to bore me. And I like to believe I can remain objective in terms of what I like. Sure I saw the bulk of my shows 89-91 but listening back I think that era holds up as being pretty tight and well played. This doesn't change my belief that it is not subjective that 72-74 was unquestionably the bands musical peak. Another thing that I don't think is subjective is the Brent and Vince songs. Hey if people like them more power to them ( even though I think they suck )but if they rank these songs higher than the Jerry/Hunter stuff then I wonder what else they listen to you know?

Speaking only for myself, it's not bad for 1990s Dead; not as good as Bruce-era '90-91. But I wanted to second Cook's endorsement of this Vince cover. The guy had musical chops and questionable taste, but he really surprised me with this cover at this show. So yes, it's partly a smile-factor rather than brilliant playing.

Cliff - GD shows were always about the location and the scene as much as the music. The Egypt shows are Unlistenable Crap and yet you yourself gave them Historical Signifigance based on their location alone. Pretty Girls and parking lots are part of the dynamic and many a night the most interesting performances were not solely on stage. Not every Red Rocks shows was brilliant and yet I am sure every concert there was a blast.
